Grand Total: 82! Woo Hoo


My newest additions could have been pieced for you curve aficionados out there...however, as fearless as my quilting is I've yet to conquer the curve. I thought I'd be all over it right away but curve piecing these tiny blocks makes me nauseous. Since I did manage to learn a bit of applique, I skipped the curves and finished in a reasonable amount of time. I'd say quickly but I did have a big problem with the first one when it was just stitches from completion. Overtired and enthusiastic to finish a block, I clipped right through my work. It happens---just a reminder to slow down, I suppose. =)
82 blocks and counting---I like the sound of that.
Happy Quilting

  1. 82 is quite a few blocks. Looks good even though you aren't fond of piecing them.

  6. So annoying when you clip too much (been there, done that) and it always happens at the end.

  7. Pip, so true! I took a few days away from it and am feeling better.

    Rose Marie, it's a work in progress. I have a few software programs that work independently so the most thorough layout is still in my head =).

    Lilla Marilla, there will be 169 blocks that make up the center of the quilt. Triangles (if I do them) will add quite a few more. An earlier entry explains quite a bit about the background of the original.
